As summer approaches, it’s time to think about fresh new outfit ideas. For instance, why not try a gorgeous lace bralette that shows off your body?
A bralette is a trendy and unique piece of clothing that can be styled in many ways. Obviously, younger girls are typically the ones wearing bralettes, but they can look good on anyone, paired with the right garments. A bralette is not only stylish but also quite comfortable and light — perfect for those hot summer days!
In light of that, let’s explore some bralette styling options:
1. As a Crop Top
If you feel comfortable showing a bit of skin, a bralette can look amazing when worn as a crop top. For instance, you can pair a lace bralette with a cute skater skirt for the perfect nightclub outfit. On the other hand, you can also achieve a more elegant look if you pair it with a sleek pair of pants and kitten heels.
We recommend going with high-waist or mid-waist bottoms, as they look much better with shorter tops than low-waist ones. Still, that depends on you and how much stomach you’d like to show.
2. Underneath a Jacket/Blazer
For those who like looking bold and edgy, a bralette paired with a jacket or blazer might be a good option. If you’re into grunge and all things black, may we suggest a black lace bralette and leather jacket? It’s a striking combination that not many can pull off, but a dark smokey-eye and a bit of confidence can go a long way for this look.
However, some of you may prefer something a bit lighter and softer. If that’s the case, we suggest you pair a bralette of your choice with a long oversized cardigan. That combination has a relaxed boho-chic vibe, but it’s also quite modern.
3. Underneath a Shirt
Although it might seem like a shame to cover an expensive bralette with a shirt or jumper, that can prove to be an interesting look if styled right.
For instance, a bralette is often worn underneath a loose tank top with wide sleeve openings. In our opinion, that’s the best way to style this type of top.
Also, you can wear a bralette underneath a sheer shirt or jumper. Unlike with a bra, which should match the color of the shirt you’re wearing, you can experiment with a bralette as much as you want. As an example, try combining a bright red bralette with a white see-through knit sweater.
4. Over a Shirt
If you’d like to try something new and exciting, we suggest you wear a bralette over your shirt or T-shirt. This look requires a bit of thinking and planning, but it does pay off in the end.
When choosing a shirt for your outfit, make sure you go with something form-fitting. A loose shirt will get wrinkled under a bralette and make you look sloppy. Also, make sure you pick a shirt with a closed neckline, maybe even a turtleneck. That way, it will contrast the low cut of the bralette and balance out the overall look.
